Spring is often one of the best times of the year as the temperatures begin to warm steadily and everything is green and blooming. However, as a homeowner, taking necessary precautions during the spring season is crucial to protect your basement from water damage. With the proper preparations and proactive measures, you can ensure that your basement remains dry and safe throughout the season despite the challenges of rain.  

Are April Showers Going to Threaten Your Basement?  

To avoid unpleasantries like flooding or leaking foundation walls, consider AdvantaClean basement waterproofing. Spring brings a lot of rainfall, which can quickly saturate the ground and exert tremendous pressure on your basement walls. This hydrostatic pressure can lead to foundation cracks and seepage, causing problems in your basement. It is crucial to take preventive measures and ensure your basement is adequately protected against water damage during this time of year. 

  • Mold Development - A damp basement can put you at risk of mold growth, which thrives in dark and humid environments. Mold spores can destroy organic building materials and cause concerns for your household.  
  • Musty/Mildewy Smells—Damp basements can cause unpleasant, musty odors that can spread to your home. These odors can indicate the growth of mold. 
  • A Weakened Structure - Water seepage in your basement can weaken the foundation and floors, causing significant damage to your home's structure. This seepage can compromise the safety of your home and lead to costly repairs. 

How AdvantaClean Can Help Protect Your Basement 

The ultimate aim of basement waterproofing is to prevent any water from entering your basement and causing damage. Water can seep into your lower level through cracks in the foundation walls or floors, leading to severe problems if left unchecked. Therefore, it is crucial to take action to waterproof your basement. There are several effective methods available for waterproofing your basement, including:  

  • Repairing Existing Cracks - Our team specializes in an Epoxy/Urethane injection process that effectively fills existing foundation cracks and prevents further seepage. 
  • Drainage - Install a perimeter drainage system to redirect water from your basement. 
  • Waterproofing Inside and Out – To prevent water damage to your home's foundation, we excavate around it and apply a waterproof membrane to the exterior walls. 
  • Sump Pumps - A sump pump pumps water out of your basement and away from your home. 
  • Structural Installations - Use window well liners, covers, and drains to keep water out of your basement through basement windows.
